About the course

There are many forms of printmaking and each has its own unique processes and histories. In this course I will give an overview of the history of printmaking, touching on how it has been used as a way to spread knowledge and political messages throughout the medium's history. I will give a brief description of the process of how woodcut, intaglio etched, lithographic, and screenprints are made. This will be followed with images and descriptions of famous historical prints of each type.

Hello! My name is Arianna and I am a multidisciplinary artist, scholar, and organizer. I recently graduated from Hampshire College with a BA in Visual and Performing Arts Curation, and a Certificate in Arts Administration from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I am currently living in my home state of Minnesota, and I am excited to share with you my knowledge of theatre, print, book, and jewelry making. I have taught workshops to people of all ages in these subjects, and I have been a youth tutor for three years. I enjoy learning new things and making new things, and I hope my students share that excitement.
